A former governor of Kano state, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has faulted media reports credited to his nephew that his supporters have been asked to decamp to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

His nephew, Musa Ilyasu Kwankwaso had in an interview said the former governor had directed his supporters to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the PDP.

 But in a statement on Friday by his media aide, Binta Spikin, Kwankwaso said he was horrified by the report, describing it as blatant lies.

"When did Musa Iliyasu become the spokesperson of Senator Kwankwaso that is worth the attention of a reputable paper like the Trust? This is not acceptable, by any standard.

"The media should learn to source its stories. When it needs news from the Kwankwasiyya fold, it should contact its various members either through the formal or informal channels. We are ready to oblige you.

"This misrepresentation of fact, especially on Senator Kwankwaso has to stop," she said.
